If you’re looking to improve sagging skin, there are new tightening treatments that actually work, so if you want to see results, make sure you consider the following:

Radiofrequency

This treatment is very effective, especially when it comes to the neck. Radiofrequency energy heats the collagen under the skin’s surface, which causes it to contract, and more collagen will be created as a result. Collagen is a must for healthy and younger looking skin, and this treatment will successfully tighten your skin. You will see a drastic improvement in the appearance of your neck skin, and results will be visible in anywhere from six weeks to three months. Radiofrequency can also be used for the body and can tighten excess skin in the arms, tummy and thighs.

Ultrasound

This treatment consists of sound waves to boost the collagen that is stored under the skin’s surface, which will result in firmer skin. It is very effective when tightening the neck, chin and brow area and can penetrate at different depths, so you can go deeper and skip the superficial layer of the skin. This means you can get more heat without burning the inside of your skin.

Microneedling

This is an effective treatment if it is combined with other technologies. Newer procedures actually combine several technologies in one device to achieve better results. For example, microneedling can be combined with radiofrequency and laser light, which will result in tighter-looking skin. Newer technologies and devices allow for the needles to be pushed gently into the skin and gives complete control to the dermatologist so that they have precise control over the area. The treatment is very comfortable, and no downtime is required. Microneedling helps stimulate collagen, which results in tighter and firmer-looking skin and is ideal for the neck, chest and face.

Surgery

When it comes to skin tightening procedures, plastic surgery is the most effective option. While longer recovery periods are part of the procedure, the results will be immediate and long lasting, so surgical options may be worth considering. General anesthesia will be required, and some scars may be visible afterwards, but the results will be very dramatic if the surgery is performed by a reputable and certified plastic surgeon.

Coolsculpting and Kybella

While these treatments are primarily used to help reduce fat, they will also help tighten the skin, particularly in the chin area. The results may not be as dramatic because these treatments are not specifically intended to tighten the skin but you will be able to see a difference and will experience a number of benefits. Coolsculpting freezes fat cells to the point where they die while Kybella injections gradually melt away pockets of unwanted fat.
